The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency today recognized the Arizona Department of Water Resources as the winner of the WaterSenseŽ State Challenge, a challenge among 20 states to encourage their local water providers to join EPA’s WaterSense program and encourage water efficiency nationwide. Launched in 2006, WaterSense provides consumers with simple ways to use less water. Utilities, state and local governments, manufacturers, retailers, distributors, trade associations, and irrigation professionals that partner with WaterSense encourage their constituents to look for the WaterSense label on products such as toilets and faucets and water their landscapes more efficiently.
